Isaac has been a welcome addition to the Wynnum Manly Physiotherapy team in 2022 and although a Brisbane local, he completed his Bachelor of Physiotherapy at James Cook University up in Townsville.
Isaac's top priority is to ensure that your individual needs and concerns are met. He firmly believes that a trip to the physio should be a positive and engaging experience. Isaac likes taking the time listen to his patients and thoroughly assess and treat their concerns.
Isaac has a keen interest in injury prevention, rehabilitation, and strength training. He prefers treating with hands on techniques and manual therapy, so he can accurately identify the issues and treat in a way which generates the best results. When appropriate, Isaac likes using his experience with strength training and Pilates to facilitate with your recovery and rehabilitation.
Isaac loves all aspects of physiotherapy, with a particular interest in treating shoulders, necks and lower backs. He is also experienced with occupational injuries, whether it be office related neck pain or a work-related knee injury from repetitive lifting. Isaac regularly attends education courses to further expand his knowledge of physiotherapy in order to deliver optimal treatment to all his patients.
Outside of work, you'll find Isaac playing basketball, or trying his hand at fishing (strong emphasis on trying). He also loves trying out new breweries and grabbing some accompanying chicken wings!! Isaac is also a keen hiker and is always looking for new trek recommendations to do.
